Clarissa Tempest has dealt with plenty of bedlam in Bethlehem. There’s been a bit of peace now until she learns that a dear friend has died. Maybe now, she’ll face her fear and take her relationship to the next level because tomorrow isn’t a guarantee. But then, of course, there’s a body.
Excerpt:Footsteps sound behind me, and I don’t bother to turn around.
“Diego,” I say.
“Good guess. How did you know it was me?” he asks as he moves to stand beside me and wraps an arm around my shoulders.
“Who else would be prowling the cemetery at this hour?”
“Besides you? Not too many.” He tweaks my nose.
“How romantic.” I slap his chest.
“I can be romantic when I want to be.” Case in point, he hands me a box.
I open it to learn it’s a box of chocolates. “Thank you, but how many did you eat?”
The moon shines on his face as he quirks his lips. “Just one.”
“I guess that’s all right,” I tease. “I might let you stick around.”
“There’s a chance you won’t?” he presses, smirking.
“On second thought…” I place the chocolate box down to the side and stare up into his handsome face, and the words just slip out. I originally intended to ask tonight in bed, but why not here? Some would think a proposal in a cemetery is a bit morbid, and maybe it is, but it fits us. It fits me. “I love you, Diego. Let’s get married.”
He gapes at me for a split second and then shakes his head and mumbles something in Spanish.
I lift my eyebrows. “I don’t know what you said, but I also didn’t hear sí.”

AUTHOR INTERVIEWHello and welcome, readers! We have Nicole Zoltack here with us today. Nicole Zoltack, thanks for visiting us.
How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I’ve been a writer forever. I’ve always wanted to be a writer since I was four years old, and in 2009, I was published for the first time, and I haven’t looked back since! I started to write because my mom used to sit my sister and I down at the kitchen table while she was making meals. She gave us papers and pencils and told us to write, so writing’s always been a part of my life.
Tell us about your title featured in: A Cursed All Hallows’ Eve
When Wendigos Prey is an epilogue to my Bedlam in Bethlehem series about a detective in Bethlehem, PA who discovers that the creatures that go bump in the night are real and not just myths.
How did you come up with the storyline?
I always wanted to write a short bit about what happens to Clarissa. So much darkness has touched her life that it’s time for some happiness, but there’s a body. There’s always a dead body.
What inspires you to write?
I find inspiration everywhere, from tv shows, movies, dreams, playing the what if game… I have a ton of ideas to write!
Tell us about your other books:
There’s the Bedlam in Bethlehem series, which kicks off a huge world with a ton of other series to enjoy. Next is Magical Hunters Academy, a series about a school that teaches paranormal beings how to become hunters, slayers, or executioners of evil paranormal beings. There’s Blood Haven Academy, an academy for vampires. The trilogy is a paranormal retelling of Romeo and Juliet. There’s also Magical Prison, about twin fairies, and finally, Rebel, Supernatural Bounty Hunter is the last series in this world so far. It’s about—you guessed it!—a supernatural bounty hunter. A human supernatural bounty hunter. There’s plenty of crossover in the later books!
I also have a trilogy called Queenmaker about King Arthur if he had been a girl. Once Upon a Darkened Night is a series of twisted fairy tales where the villain is now the hero. There’s a superhero trilogy and a quartet about dragon shifters… What can I say? I love to write!
